Jacoby Jones has been an inconsistent player for the Ravens as well. If you watched their games and look at his numbers, he hasn't become the #2 WR there that they were trying to get him to be here.
He is probably better suited for them because the Ravens offense is more of a slot machine in taking down field chances, more than most teams in the NFL. That explains Flacco's up and down regular season performance, and the inconsistent performance of his WRs. They don't play a lot of high percentage ball, and when they aren't hitting, they are hoping that Ray Rice bails them out.
Jones had good moments for the Texans. He had bad moments as well. And he, and the Ravens got hot at the right time. So it goes.
As for why the Texans kept Marciano, I think my blog post explores some of those issues.
